ALL TEAM SPONSORS
If it weren’t for the support of our sponsors we wouldn’t be able to dedicate as much of ourselves to the sport. We show our love the best way we know how: exposure, social media, spreading word of their remarkable skill-sets, product feedback, pacing, running or swimming related coaching, and on. The following sponsors offer a variety of incentives to help our team race and train at the level it does.
